. >>> president obama and governor romney were largely in agreement on a range of foreign policy concerns. particularly those centering on the middle east. the ouster of former president mubarak of egypt, the 2014 exit date for afghanistan, the killing of terrorists with nutes romney and obama echoed each other. >> question. is bipartisanship now back in style at least when it comes to foreign policy in a presidential debate? pat buchanan? >> no it isn't but they are moving toward consensus where the american people are at. they are both pro israel, going to stand beside them. both very hawkish toward iran, although they don't want war in the middle east again. they don't want boots on the ground. they both say we have to do nation building here at home because that is the consensus where the american people are at john. but i wouldn't call it bipartisanship. romney lost this debate on points but he won it because he contradicted the image barack obama has sought to portray of him, reckless, bombing people, putting troops in syria. that is why you are seeing the steady momentum of romney
like mitt romney and lose four years ago, the campaign never stops. even if you are obama and u.n. four years ago, the campaign never stops. america seems to be less about governing and more about campaigning. everything you do is about the campaign. does that make sense? >> i agree with you. the problem has to do with government. there is very little time to get things done. as soon as these guys are in washington, they are already thinking about the next campaign. the first 100 days -- and now, sometimes, it is the first 50 days before things began to change. no matter how the race turns out in two weeks, you will see people, certainly republicans if the president gets elected, heading to iowa before the end of the year. no joke. the question is when we begin to cover it. usually, out of respect, we try to wait. i would bet by one year from now, you will see lots of stories in iowa and new hampshire. tavis: that scares me. >> they have to get fund- raisers, nail down supporters, and the earlier it begins, the more pressure there is on people to do it. if romney loses, you will see a w

, the white house and the romney campaign offered different assessments. a late boost in consumer spending was a major factor in the economic news from the commerce department. gross domestic product-- the broadest gauge of the country's economic health-- grew at a 2% rate from july through september, slightly better than the 1.8% economists had predicted, and an improvement over the 1.3% growth in the previous quarter. another positive sign today-- a survey from the university of michigan shows consumer confidence this month reached its highest level since september 2007, three months before the recession began. but the gdp growth is still considered by economists to be too weak to bring a quick up-tick in jobs. and on the stump in ames, iowa, today, mitt romney seized on the that aspect of the new report. >> today, we received the latest round of discouraging economic news. last quarter, our economy grew at just 2%. after the stimulus was passed, the white house promised it would be growing at 4.3%, over twice as fast. slow economic growth means slow job growth and declining take- home p
romney wasted no time today getting back out on the campaign trail. with election day now only two weeks away, the candidates are devoting every waking minute to revving up the base and courting any remaining undecided voters in a handful of critical swing states. for mr. obama this morning, that meant the campaign rally before an enthusiastic crowd in delray beach, florida, not far from the the site of last night's face-off. >> you guys really are fired up. ifill: picking up where he left off last night he fold voters that governor romney is not a reliable choice. >> we're accustomed to seeing politicians change their positions from like four years ago. we are not accustomed to seeing politicians change their position from four days ago. i mean,... and we joke about romnesia but you know what? this is is important. this is about trust. there is no more serious issue in a presidential campaign than trust. >> ifill: doubling down on that argument vice president joe biden amplified the democrats' message at the university of toledo in ohio before meeting up with the president later in the
about what people say are completely irrelevant. governor romney has changed his position on just about everything throughout his entire career. and that, i believe, bedevils the fact checkers who will say, "well, his official position is this, but then he did that. so it's hard to know, but you can't really say, this is true because also that's true." if that's the context, if that's what's going on, then i'm not sure what can be learned at all about governor romney because the chances of him saying something different, doing something different once the election comes, based on his behavior during this campaign and while he's been running for president, are extremely high. >> let me give you an example of what people have learned. people know that governor romney is going to increase spending for the military. and that's a consequential difference. they know that president obama is going to increase taxes, where, where governor romney is not if he's elected president. that's an important issue distinction. coming into the last debate, the annenberg survey showed that the public though

. if romney is elected, he talked about forming some of the elements of the opposition. but small arms are not a problem right now for the opposition. training them to use larger weapons takes time and territory on which to do it. >> thank you for joining us. now to the gaza strip, where there has been a sharp increase in violence in the last few days. israel said the militants they hit recently were hit as they prepared to fire rockets into israel. here is a report. >> anger and grief in gaza. these hamas fighters were killed by israeli air strikes as they tried to fire rockets and mortars a across the border. even as the funerals were taking place, we found more attacks being launched. hamas said it was responding to israeli aggression. >> this is a dangerous escalation. it comes after israeli threats to target the strip. the israelis want to disrupt the atmosphere. they want to achieve political and electoral gains ahead of the coming israeli elections. >> israel managed to shoot down some of the rockets with its designer defense shield. it's military power is far superior. but some

hurricane sandy has put both u.s. presidential candidates on high alert. mitt romney's already cancelled a rally scheduled for sunday evening in virginia beach. with only 11 days until polling day, both barack obama and mitt romney have been importanting over the latest economic data. figures show the u.s. economy grew 2% in the last three months. the white house says the economy is moving in the right direction. the republicans say the figures are discouraging news. our north american editor, mark, has been with mr. romney on the campaign trail. >> if it's friday it must be iowa and ohio. for hit romney this is a relentless race from state to state, stage to stage, squeezing out every last vote with a new message underlying what a difference four years makes. he says president obama stands for the status quo. he is the candidate of hope and change. >> if you're ready for that kind of change, if you want this to be a turning point in america's course, join paul ryan and me. get your friends and family to do the same. and vote now for the kind of leadership that these times demand. >> and
romney prepare for their last the day. is there anyone left to persuade? he stripped of his seven titles, lance armstrong is given a lifetime ban from the sport he once ruled. a is nothing sacred? the 07 trades in his signature martini for a beer. as james bond sold out in skyfall? welcome to our viewers on public television in america and around the globe. 15 days to go until the presidential election. it seems unbelievable that there are voters left that have not made up their mind. but tonight, the final debate could be the event that tips them. this race is very tight. mark starts our coverage from the debate site. >> it won't come down to the foot of a coin, but the election hangs in there. he takes a little time on the florida beach. with only one opponent down tonight, he probably doesn't feel as still as he looks. they will set out how they think america should act abroad. president obama says he has his record. he says he rebuild america's image and to mend relations. but he says he has failed to give strong leadership to the world, particularly over the arab revolution. john mc
and as i say these mythologies that governor romney is protecting medicare, false, that he is a champion for women, false, that his tax plan is going to create 12 million jobs, false, he wants to take us to the same tax agenda of president bush which in fact took us into the ditch we are still digging ourselves out of. >> nancy pelosi for the hour. funding for charlie rose was provided by the following. >> rose: additional funding provided by these funders. >> and by bloomberg, a provider of multimedia news and information services worldwide. captioning sponsored by rose communicationsÑi from our studios in new york city, this is charlie rose. >> rose: nancy pelosi is here, she is the minority leader of the house of representatives, she has served in congress for over 25 years, in 2007 became the first female speaker of the house, her commitment toçó democratic politics has made her one of the party's assets as november election approaches, democrats are hopeful they can take back control of the house, i am pleased to have her here back at the table. welcome. >> thank you, charlie. >>
to return to all -- to washington, specifically to the oval office. mr. romney wants to deny him. there has been a great debate about obama care. the president says he now likes the name obamacare, so i will call it obamacare. there was a great debate. there was a suggestion that we do not need obamacare. he went on to suggest that if something happens to you and they rush to to the hospital, they are not going to turn you away. they are going to be there for you. for those who actually see public hospitals or our system in that way, that is, something tragic and traumatic happens to you, the hospital will not turn you away, what do you say to mitt romney or people who view that system in that way? >> when we started developing the approach to the film, ultimately, the storytelling project set that tone. it was going to be and a political film and we were not and have -- we were not going to have that narration or text. that decision turned out to be a powerful decision. what we decided to do was train the lens on the waiting room, follow people during their day- to-day, navigating without
to be perennial campaigns? if you lose, like romney did last time, the campaign continues. if you win, like obama did, the campaign continues. >> i think we need to change the constitution. there should be 16-year term. -- one 6-year term. i have a whole five-point plan to reinvigorate america. tavis: give me more. >> i would legalize all drugs and sell them at the pharmacy tomorrow. we would be in the black in a year. i would cut the defense budget by half and double the salary of every teacher in america. i would reinvigorate the ccc, give everybody $20, and fill some pot holes. keep it going, number four, i would mandate that every car in america has to drive on hydrogen fuel. in five years. tavis: that would solve the energy dependence problem. >> there are a few guys who give a lot of money to our politicians in the oil industry who would not like that very much. in short, what i'm saying is, in order to do this, i would have to seize power in this country. i am too busy writing books. tavis: what do you make of the fact that some of the things you just said our common sense ideas, particula

if romney comes in and declares china a currency manipulator on day one -- >> rose: trade war? >> i think that's dangerous. i think's an assumption particularly amongst republicans that china is the same old china that china is used to being a xwashed on the presidential trail and it will go through it and just it is there and think it's another president coming in who's bashed us, we'll just take time and come back. i think china has fundamentally changed. i think china now sees itself much more as in the -- has read this stuff about being a g-2 world, and it's less if the mood to take ultimatums. so you can end up with two very practical people. i think romney is quite practical but you can see an element whereby if they give an ultimatum to the sort of people who vijay just described that could be very dangerous. >> rose: and it could spill over not just in terms of trade but in terms of the essence of the relationship and all the potential for working together on big problems. >> it's all -- a lot of these nationalistic questions like the islands, like the disputes with japan, on all
romney today promised big changes if he's elected, in a speech billed as his closing argument in the campaign. he accused president obama of shrinking from the major issues facing the nation. romney promised to offer policies that matched the scale of today's economic challenges. he again touted his five point plan for economic growth, including promoting small businesses, cutting the federal budget, and keeping taxes low. >> this is not the time to double down on trickle down government policies that have failed us. it's time for new bold changes that measure up to the moment and that can bring america's families the certainty that the future will be better than the past. >> tom: the obama campaign pushed back against the speech, a spokeswoman today said while governor romney is promising change, it's change that will lead us back to the same failed policies that crashed our economy in the first place. >> tom: in cities across the u.s., the biggest mortgage lender, wells fargo looking to mend its image after accusations it steered minority homebuyers into sub-prime loans. the
with the 2012 election last night, president obama and mitt romney balanced it out in the third and final debate. at lynn university in boca raton florida, the suggest was foreign policy but discussion often veered toward domestic concerns as well, the two men addressed a range of issues, including iran, china and the u.s. economy and offered the candidate the last chance to face-off before the election which is now just two weeks ahead. joining me now is a distinguished group of the wealth of knowledge when it comes to foreign policy, from washington's zbigniew brzezinski, national security advisor, under president jimmy carter, david ignatius of the washington post and michael mazarr, professor of national security strategy at the u.s. national war college. with me in new york, general jim jones, former national security advisor for president obama. i am pleased to have each of them here on this program to talk about this important topic. michael tell me what the essential argument is that you are outlining in this piece. >> well, yes, the essential argument of the piece is that the current
and governor mitt romney taking different tactics the day after their latest debate. governor romney released a new ad using a criticism he deployed in last night's debate. >> the president began an "apology tour," going to various nations and criticizing america... >> tom: in his own ad, the president answered critics who say he hasn't laid out his plan should he win re-election. >> here's my plan for the next four years: making education and training a national priority. building on our manufacturing boom. boosting american-made energy. reducing the deficit responsibly by cutting where we can and asking the wealthy to pay a little more. >> tom: while neither candidates mentioned the fiscal cliff in last night's debate, they did talk a little about the automatic spending cuts piece of the fiscal cliff. >> and i will not cut our military budget by a trillion dollars, which is a combination of the budget cuts the president has, as well as the sequestration cuts. that, in my view, is making... is making our future less certain and less secure. >> first of all, the sequester is not something tha
: education is one of the many issues president obama and governor romney sparred about in their presidential campaign debates. and tonight's commentator says there's an entire group of students that have been short- changed. he's todd buccholz, author of "rush: why you need and love the rat race." >> our schools have cheated and discriminated against a generation of students. when i was in high school, they divided us into two tracks. the college prep kids read "beowulf" and "macbeth"; the other kids were shunted into so- called vocational education, where they learned how to build a house, change spark plugs, and wire air conditioners. of course now, most of us college kids can't even explain how a toaster works. so where was the cheating and discrimination? those vocational kids weren't taught enough. they should've been taught, not just how to build and fix things, but how to run a business. if you've been trained as a plumber and can snake a pipe, you might be able to make ends meet for your family. but if you've also learned how to open your own plumbing business, you can prosper. if yo
